The Range Podcast: Ep 042 Are Crossbows Archery?

In this episode of The Range Podcast, Ricky has a conversation with Josh Wells of the Wells Outdoor Journal, about whether Crossbows should be categorized as Archery. In 2023, new legislation in the state of Minnesota has allowed all persons of any age and physical ability to hunt with a crossbow for the entirety of the archery season.

The new law has sparked heated debate amongst online forums, and it seems the hunting community is unable to come to an agreement. Despite the varying opinions, a battle ensues behind the scenes, that could decide the fate of our all, future hunting opportunities.
